For sale is a fabulous African shield from the Songye or Luba tribes of the Congo DRC.
It is painted with unusual pigment colors and carved with a sun motif.
This carved & painted shield is from the late 1800s or early 1900s and has signs of age and use as would be expected.
It is in very good condition for its age but does have a piece of wood missing from the back bottom as shown.
It is 36″ L X 8 1/2″ W X 4 1/2″ D (or 7″ D including the handle).
I have taken photos from all angles so please view them for further information.
This is not a commonly seen piece and is a great collector`s item.
Thank you for looking and please follow & my browse my store as new art is added often.
